Hello, I was wondering if I could get some input on defragmentation software for Windows? I am currently using a paid product called PerfectDisk from Raxco software. I purchased this product years ago when I was still running XP and it was one of the best defragmentation tools available at that time. Since that time Raxco has continued to enhance their product and I didn't pay too much attention to these enhancements until late last week when I noticed that my laptop booted really fast and my desktop didn't. In fact on my desktop, it was taking forever for the network icon to indicate that the network was available for use and my desktop is hard wired to the router. To make a long story short I found out that PerfectDisk was loading a whole bunch of enhanced features at boot time and these features were running all the time and these features were things I really didn't need. Once some of these features were turned off my desktop PC booted really fast and my overall system performance increased. Reflecting on what I had discovered, I've began to question how much of an improvement Raxco has made to the defragmentation process itself in relation to all of the bells and whistles they've added. In addition I've began to question whether others have caught up to Raxco on their defragmentation process and whether I'm shelling out a lot of money on upgrades for bells and whistles I really don't need or want. Therefore I'm seeking out advice on this issue and would like to know if there are free products now that can do a good job of defragging my hard drive? Are these free products any better than the defragger that comes with Windows? Are there any paid versions that are better than the free versions that don't have a lot of bells and whistles? If you are using something other than the built-in defragger that comes with Windows what is the name of that product and why did you pick that product over another. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
